What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a holistic system of medicine that helps the body fight disease by using the body’s own vital force. This system of medicine is a based on the law similia similibus curantur, which translates to like cures like. In this way, any substance that can create symptoms in a healthy person can be used to treat the same symptoms in a sick person. Moreover, Homeopathic Treatment considers the totality of the person: mind and body—in doing so, Homeopathy does not treat symptoms in isolation but rather treats the person holistically. This system of medicine was created by the German doctor, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, and its origins can be traced to the 18th century.
Today, Homeopathy is successfully practiced internationally. In many countries, it is integrated into the medical system as more and more people are taking greater interest in natural, alternative treatment.
How Does it Work?
Homeopathic medicines are derived from many sources including: plants, minerals, metals, animals, energy, disease products etc. Medicines are prepared through a series of dilutions and successions to achieve the desired potency. The dilution ensures that the medicine is safe to intake and is without side effect. As such, Homeopathic medicine and treatment is safe, effective, gentle and cost effective, does not interfere with any other medication and is always individualized.
Since Homeopathy treats the person, not the disease, it can be used to treat a multitude of conditions including but not limited to: migraines, high/low blood pressure, diabetes, joint pain, allergies, skin problems such as acne and eczema, digestion problems, asthma, cancer, constipation, flu, respiratory problems, colitis, sleep disorders, fertility problems, anxiety, autism, disorders affecting children, depression and many more.
